(steve)breaking news tonight.. the white house says it has found "potential" evidence that syria is preparing for another chemical weapons attack. adding the potential attack "would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children." the white house also warning if syria conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, they will pay a heavy price. earlier this year -- the u-s did strike syrian government forces.... firing 59 tomahawk cruise missiles... following a chemical weapon attack on civilians by syria. (pam) another big story tonight... today, the u.s. supreme court delivered a partial win for president trump ... allowing parts of the so-called "travel ban" ... to go into effect... but not all of it. (steve) the full case will be heard by the high court in october. tonight - we have team coverage... on what all this means. kron4's ella sogomonian is at san francisco internaional airport getting reaction from travelers.(pam) first, let's get to reporter scott mclean in washington, d.c.... with details on the high court's decision.
on the campaign trail, president trump promised to win... and today he got one... but it's only partial, and it may be temporary. in a 6-3 decision, the supreme court allowed some parts of trump's revised travel ban to go into effect, but not others. in a statement trump called it a: "clear victory for our national security. it allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries and the refugee suspension to become largely effective.the court's ruling means that people from six countries in the middle east and africa will be barred from entry for 90 days -- unless they can prove bona fide links to the u-s -- like family, a college admission, or a job offer. jeffrey toobin/cnn senior legal analyst: " the court seems to have thread a needle actually quite elegantly, where they have dealt with the people who have the biggest hardships, the saddest stories, the people who have close relatives." the affected countries -- iran, syria, yemen, libya, sudan, and somalia -- are all majority muslim. lower courts had blocked the travel ban
before it went into effect, ruling -- in part -- based on trump's comments on the campaign trail. "donald j trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states "the white house said the the ban was for national security reasons -- not religious ones. the court will sort out those arguments when it hears the full case this fall. in the meantime, both sides are claiming a win. the department of homeland security has yet to say when the partial ban will go into effect. (steve) our team coverage continues..bay area travelers we spoke with are upset that parts of the travel ban have been reinstated... kron4's ella sogomonian is live at san francisco international airport... ella - what can we expect there after today's
supreme court ruling? within 72 hours customs and border protection agents will be the people enforcing the travel ban on the front lines. san francisco international airport travelers are puzzled why the supreme court has chosen to uphold a trump administration travel ban for yemen, somalia, syria, sudan, and libiya.sot: aamir akmal, opposed to travel ban//the list of countries they've listed doesn't make sense. the whole thing doesn't make sense. there's never details, there's just these general bans just kind of making people think that they're safe when we're really not doing anything different."monday's partial approval of the ban by the highest court has middle eastern nationals from other countries worried they could be next.sot: karim galil, egyptian national/ "me personally i'm not on the list thank god but you never know when this may happen."many that spoke with kron 4 feel the united states and its allies have an obligation to
provide a safe haven for refugees who may not be able to prove they have genuine ties to the u.s. as mandated by the ruling. sot: john brigg, australian national// "if the us is going to get involved with the middle east conflict and its going to create disruption for people lives and those people are not a danger to the united states then obviously the united state and all its allies have responsibilities."sot: aamir akmal, opposed to travel ban//"i think if we say we are a global super power and we're going to preach democracy and human rights then we should accept our fair share of refugees and take whatever risk is with that."sfo spokesperson doug yakel says the airport is prepared in case they see another round of protests.while the department of homeland security released a statement following the partial approval of the ban saying it would implement the ban "professionally, with clear and sufficient public notice, particularly to potentially affected travelers, and in coordination with partners in the travel industry." another concern for people they tell me is that the trump administration is focusing on a ban that they don't see merits as much attention as what really impact americans on a daily basis like healthcare. live at sfo ella sogomonian kron 4 news.

york: "the cbo report makes it clear, the senate bill is every bit as "mean" as the house bill"twenty-two million. that's how many more americans would be without health insurance by 2026, if the proposed senate gop health care bill passes, according to the congressional budget office report.like the house version of the bill that passed in may, this version would end enhanced medicaid expansion, eliminate coverage mandates, and allow insurers to charge older policyholders more. premiums would be down about 20% over the next 10 years for the average customer. the u.s. deficit could also be cut by $321 billion dollars. but those in the individual market would be hit with dramatic increases for services. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell is scrambling to shore up votes for the bill, but these new numbers may not help. sen. lindsey graham/ -r- south carolina: from a political point of view, if you had a problem with the bill, the cbo score didn't help you at all. is this going to pass? bottom line?it won't get 49 votes, ... 50 or 30 or 35. i don't know if i were a betting man i think it is going to be a heavy lift between the cruz,
rand paul world and susan collins and heller, it's going to be tough to get to 50 but time will tell."senate republicans unveiled their version of the obamacare repeal last thursday to an underwhelming response by many in their own party. sen. rand paul/ -r- kentucky: "i'm also concerned that the republican version keeps most of the subsidies and creates a brand- new subsidy... all of those things together make me very concerned we're not going to fix the problem here." only two republican senators can vote against the bill in order for it to still pass, and as of monday afternoon, as least five oppose it.from washington, i'm scott mclean.
